Smartest things heard in… July!

I have a confession to make (most that know me, this will not be a surprise). I am a quote junkie. Ever since I was a little kid I’ve  jot down smart (sometimes not so smart) things that I’ve overheard. You could always find a notepad, whether in my pocket, purse or book bag somewhere within reach. When cell phones came around you would find a “quotes” folder located somewhere in my phone.  Anytime anybody ever said anything or I read something that made me go, “I like that” it got wrote (typed) down. When you start paying attention to the things people say you’ll be amazed at how profound (or hilarious) people can be. Once I found a piece of paper in the parking lot at a grocery store that said simply: To do-buy bread, mail bills, hide gun, call Sharon…Seriously, how can you not love that???

People are amazing!
